This is Beth. As I sat getting the April Brunette do done, I came across this:

Many dos of Keira Knightley

The many dos of Keira Knightley – a perfect example of the kind of celebrity lock changing that inspired this little hair blog project.

This is Beth. And this is one of the most dramatic hair transformations I’ve seen recently, complete with great story!

In Suzuki’s words:

Since you asked about my thought process, a less-is-more spirit has been compelling me. After a lengthy period of neglect, I recently overhauled my office, cleaned out my closet, pruned my fruit trees, and stepped into a hair salon for the first time in a decade. (My husband is now off the hook for trims.) The time had come for an actual hairstyle!

Specifically, I desired a 1920s style that would work with my waves. I had to cut it a few times before it approximated what I had in mind.Then I had to figure out how to let it dry and get it styled into a somewhat decent shape. (The alternatives provide family entertainment. I can now look just like a human Q-Tip or like my head’s on fire.)

One thing I noticed after the latest cut was: Oh, I have a neck! Suddenly, jewelry seems apropos and looks right.

The style itself is a work-in-progress and I’m having fun experimenting. Change is good!
